Alternative to cedar shake shingles
My husband and I are hoping to break ground in the spring on a new home. We LOVE the exterior of this home
However, we dread the care involved with maintaning real cedar shake shingles. Does anyone have any suggestions or information? The plan will have a full walkout basement to a lake, so there is a lot of square footage to cover. We are considering the following alternatives...
1. Painting Hardishingle individual or shingle panels. (Really not sold on the look of this for an entire house)
2. Staining cement board with Mason Select Stain.
3. Nailite RoughSawn Cedar Vinyl shingles in "Sunset Cedar"
4. Any other possible products?
Thanks so much in advance for sharing your knowledge.
